Why are some people concerned about BPA?
The levels of Bisphenol-A found in food from food contact materials are not a concern to health. However, there have been claims that BPA could be one of a large number of substances that may have the potential to interact with our hormone systems, also referred to as 'endocrine disrupters'.
Although there is evidence that some wildlife species have been affected by coming into contact with endocrine disrupters, there is still no conclusive evidence of a link between harmful effects on human reproductive health and exposure to these chemicals.
Research is still going on to establish whether or not bisphenol-A has this effect in humans. However, well-conducted studies have shown that bisphenol-A in food is not a health concern.
